Southend-on-Sea, day out


2012

Another ebay item was the catalyst for another adventure around this fine country.
We’d never done Southend before so thought it would make an exciting (at least different) day out.

Canvey Island


We started the day at Canvey Island to collect a generator, interesting place, not sure I’d be going back in a hurry, but not unpleasant.

Nothing special, but ok for a sunny day out.

Then on to Southend-on-Sea, this was more of a result, parked on the cliff top just above the lift.

Looks quite impressive in the sun. But the boys wanted some fun, and the amuzements were on the agenda.

The boys really enjoy this sort of thing and the afternoon was a treat for them.

And after the really exciting stuff, some childish silliness, well they are children, and so am I.

Big man still loves these…

Little man loves them too

And…

Not to mention

Not a bad day out.

Thank you friends at Anglian

It all got a bit much on friday leaving Anglian, I’ve made some really good friends and it was really hard to leave.
But it’s really nice to know how truly kind some of the people in the office there are.

Unfortunately there are a few that are less so.

I’m really honoured to have been associated with some of the really great people there. And to all those, thank you for contributing to the collection. I know many of you have had real terms pay reductions of these last few years, so that make it even more special.

To those that I leave, good luck and hopefully things will improve soon.

I’m leaving with a mix of emotions, sadness to be leaving you, but on the other hand excited at the extra money and new job.

Until we catch up again, hopefully soon.

Thank you all.
